Ottoman Colours and Materials

An Ottoman is a versatile and flexible piece of furniture with multiple uses across your living room. It’s a freestanding piece that comes in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials, generally padded and upholstered and occasionally with a hollow centre for extra storage.

Use it as a centrepiece, a place to put your feet up and rest or move it to the side for some flexible extra seating. The versatility comes from the simplicity of its design, with a choice of styles and colours to match your existing suite or to add an element of contrast.

Ottomans come in a selection of materials including leather, fabric and distressed velvet, with both classic and bold colour choices - from bright blues and yellows to neutral tones and earthy greens.

Style Choices for Ottomans

Despite being a relic of an ancient eastern empire, Ottomans straddle a range of design styles. It can look just as at home in a North African-themed living space as it can in a modern, contemporary living room. It’s all about a combination of design simplicity and functionality.

There are no hard and fast rules about the form your Ottoman should take. They tend to be overstuffed for that extra padded feel but can be round, square, rectangular with higher or lower profiles depending on your needs. Some designs have legs, others are formed by a large, padded base. This versatility of design makes it a valuable addition to any living space.

Accessorise with an Ottoman

Match your Ottoman to our range of sofas, armchairs and loveseats. Or make it a bold style statement with contrasting colour choices. Our selection of design styles, featuring padded fabric and leather options in a range of colours, mean there is an Ottoman for any home.

Complete your living room with a central footrest or occasional coffee table or turn an unused corner into a cosy spot to sit, read and relax. Place it to the side of your sofa as a versatile side table doubling up as extra living seating. You can even use our Ottomans to turn an ordinary seating area into a modular sofa with the movable Ottoman section creating even more relaxed living space. It’s all in our Ottoman Australia range.
